Being a homeowner in Miami Beach means having a house in one of the most desirable areas in the country, if not the world. It goes without saying that take great pride in your home and want to be able to keep it in the best shape possible. That may mean you have a rather lengthy to-do task list, but one of the jobs you have to take care of quickly is getting your popcorn ceiling removed.
There may be plenty of other things that you think should take priority. There are certainly other tasks that would be more fun and feel more rewarding. However, outdated popcorn ceiling is not something that you should continue to leave hanging around, literally.
Reasons to Get Rid Of Popcorn
Let’s be honest, first and foremost, popcorn ceiling just looks outdated and unappealing. No amount of remodeling can improve the look if you still have this type of material on your ceiling. Simply put, it becomes the focal point of any room it is in.
However, there is more to it than that. Some other reasons that you should eliminate this from your home includes:
- Popcorn ceiling can contain asbestos. Ceilings installed prior to 1978 are at a high risk of containing asbestos. However, to err on the side of caution, it makes sense to not take the risk and eliminate it no matter when you think it may have been installed. However, keep in mind that this also means that only a professional should take care of the removal. Asbestos should only be handled with and discarded by a trained and experienced industry expert.
- Textured ceilings are next to impossible to clean, which means they rarely are, if ever. The problem is that dirt, dust, cobwebs and other debris tend to cling to the texture, making it more important to actually clean it. This can be problematic for the average person; it can be a downright nightmare for anyone with respiratory related health issues, such as asthma or allergies.
- Not to mention, repairs are impossible because they stand out so much. This means replacing the entire popcorn ceiling, which is definitely not worth it.
